LANSING, Mich. (AP) -- Former Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm plans to write a book, teach at University of California-Berkeley with her husband and appear as a speaker and public commentator.
The Democrat detailed her plans to Politico for a story Monday and says she's "looking forward to this new chapter" in life.
Granholm and her husband, Dan Mulhern, are co-authoring the book about governing the economically troubled state. Politico says it's to be published in September, and they have a two-year academic appointment at the University of California-Berkeley. Granholm has a bachelor's degree from the school.
Granholm says her family is looking for a Michigan home, and she and her husband expect to split time between Michigan, California and Washington.
Granholm couldn't seek re-election because of term limits. She was governor for eight years.
